Tavern on South got a good amount of press when it first came out. Some mixed reviews in there, so I thought that I would give it some time to get on their feet. I like the location as there is ample parking right outside. The restaurant itself is very nice. Good pictures of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and it is approachable. You can feel equally comfortable wearing a suit or wearing jeans.
What I Ate: Tavern Smoked Bison Burger; $11.50. BBQ Glaze, Bacon on a Brioche Roll.
Let’s make this quick: I didn’t like it. Bison is a bit dry compared to 80/20 chuck. I thought that the BBQ glaze was a nice touch, but there needed to be about two to three times as much on there. The produce left a little to be desired as well. The tomatoes were pretty white, the lettuce was a day past fresh.
However, I will admit that that smoked bacon was very flavorful. They could make a killer BLT with this.
Would I Buy It Again? Maybe. The menu doesn’t excite me. However, I like the restaurant, they have a good beer list and the service was good. I will give it another try and report back.
